We’re excited to announce that Single.Earth has raised a $7.9M Seed round and joined the EQT Ventures portfolio of future-proof companies. The round was joined by the previous investors, Icebreaker.vc, and the founders of Pipedrive, Ragnar Sass and Martin Henk.
We’re thrilled to accelerate our growth with investors, driven by the shared purpose of saving the natural world. We’ll use the funding to launch a nature-backed MERIT tokens marketplace to make nature the new gold - and expand the team (we’re hiring!).
Read TechCrunch’s article on us: Single.Earth to link carbon credits to crypto token market, raises $7.9M from EQT Ventures.
Single.Earth is a platform that tokenizes nature for its ecological value - carbon sequestration, storage, and biodiversity. For the first time in history, nature is monetized for just being there, keeping ecosystems alive.
We turn the ecological value of nature into digital goods, called MERIT tokens. One MERIT is generated on the platform every time 100kg of CO2 is captured in biodiverse nature.
Here’s how Single.Earth creates MERIT tokens:
MERIT tokens are the first carbon instruments designed for natural climate solutions. It’s the new quality standard for carbon trading, tackling the climate and biodiversity crises together, as they should be.
We welcome all landowners to our platform - individually, institutionally, governmentally, and community-owned properties. The Single.Earth platform is designed to scale across the globe and provide transparent and easily accessible business models for landowners of all sizes and locations.
We’re beyond excited to open registration for interest in MERIT tokens pre-sale, scheduled to begin in late summer 2021. It’s a unique opportunity to be among the first to join the new financial reality, where the economy supports the protection of nature.
MERIT tokens are a fascinating combination of environmental impact and financial profit that can be used in two ways:
Pre-sales for MERIT tokens start in late summer 2021, upon full compliance with financial regulations. MERIT tokens will be traded on the Single.Earth marketplace, scheduled for public opening at the end of 2021.
Register your interest for the pre-sale today to be among the first to buy the MERIT tokens and finance the protection of forests, wetlands, and other natural resources around us.
Exciting times are ahead and we’re humbled to embark on this journey together with EQT Ventures, our previous investors, the Single.Earth team, and the new team members joining in the coming months.
Saving the natural world and turning the economy upside down is going to be the mission of our lifetimes. If you’d like to be a part of this journey, join the Single.Earth team. See our open positions.

Yours truly, Merit, Andrus, and team Single.Earth
